HAMILTON -- ROBBINSVILLE, NJ -- Get ready to swing, climb and slide again the community parks in Hamilton and Robbinsville. Beginning on Thursday, July 2, playgrounds in both townships will be open once again for children and families to enjoy outdoor play time.
These community playgrounds have been closed since mid-March as a step to stopping the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).
“We will trust in people to practice safe use tips: keeping a safe distance; wearing a mask if unable to keep a safe distance; not touching their face; properly washing or sanitizing their hands," said Hamilton Mayor Jeff Martin.
"This is what we have done at other township park facilities such as our skate park, dog park and tennis courts. Our residents have been very respectful and understanding in these general rules and we trust they will do the same with playgrounds and as more activities and businesses reopen," added Martin
Robbinsville Township Mayor Dave Fried told TAPinto Hamilton/Robbinsville that all the local parks will be reopening for children to play on Thursday.
"Outside activities seem to be a whole lot safer. But, parents should use their best judgement," said Fried. "Bring wipes with you. Socially distance from others and wearing a mask is encouraged."
Similarly, Hamilton Township reminded families to take all necessary precautions while enjoying our playgrounds in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19. They also reminded residents to stay at home if they are sick or have a fever.
